Re: Rear Door Lock Replacement*with pictures*

Thanks Harry your photos were invaluable, both my doors jammed within days of each other.

Although I spent a while using the the rod from the handle to no avail (prob about 3 hours all in).

Then I got a flat screwdriver with about a 5mm diameter head, I worked this into the gap shown on your pics, I then worked it up slightly seperating the part with the square hole away from the main lock (only by a couple of mm) when it wouldn't go any further I tapped the base of the screwdriver with my hand (firmly but too hard) and the door popped open.

When I used the screwdriver it took me a few minutes for the 1st door and about 20 seconds on the 2nd door.
